A Malaysian-born sexual predator who posed as a taxi driver and sexually assaulted more than 20 young men he picked up in a state of drunken stupour, has been jailed a minimum of 18 years by a Perth judge.
Lim Kok Foo, 42, of the Perth suburb of Tuart Hill, was sentenced in the West Australian District Court Friday, for 44 sexual offences and one count of unlawful wounding, the Australian Associated Press reports.
The court was told Lim posed as a taxi driver and had lured as many as 100 drunk young men into his car before filming his sexual assaults on them.
Judge Troy Sweeney sentenced him to 20 years and two months jail, declaring him eligible for parole two years before his sentence ending if he completes a sex offender treatment programme.
Sweeney described Lim as “truly, a sexual predator”.”That’s what you are,” she told him during sentencing.
Lim sat with his head in his hands and sobbed throughout Friday’s court appearance.
Sweeney said Lim had demonstrated no regard for the basic rights of his victims and had limited ability to express remorse.
